Jason Kidd To Unleash Kristaps Porzingis Next Season

Power forward Kristaps Porzingis is in line to play a bigger role for Dallas under new head coach Kason Kidd.

Kristaps Porzingis was limited under previous coach Rick Carlisle, who limited him to shooting 3s. Jason Kidd sees Kristaps Porzingis as more of a co-star for Luka Doncic.

“The simple way to put it is, I want KP to be a basketball player,” said Kidd. 

“There’s no limitations on just shooting 3s. Being able to roll, to be able to shoot the midrange, to be able to put the ball on the floor — I want him to be who he is, and that’s a basketball player and not just be limited to shooting 3s or crashing from the corner. I want him to feel comfortable on the floor in any spot. I think he’s a weapon. He shoots the ball too well not to be able to shoot midrange shots.”

“It’s just going to be more of my game,” said Porzingis.

“I’m going to be able to post up more and be used in those situations. I was used a lot as just a spacer and shooting 3s, and I feel that’s not my whole game. There’s more to my game. I learned a lot of things. I adjusted my game as I needed to, but I’m looking forward to being utilized the best way.”

In order to unlock Porzingis, superstar Luka Doncic must give his teammate the key. Kidd says they are working on getting Doncic to utilize the guys around him more often.

“I don’t know if anybody told Picasso that he has to use all the paints, but I just want to remind him that he can rely on his teammates,” Kidd said. “His teammates are going to be there to help him. I’m very excited to have this opportunity to work with a young Picasso whose paintings have been incredible up to this point and are only going to get better.”
